Enjoy the following excerpt from a recent Summer Singers of Atlanta performance.
The Summer Singers of Atlanta was formed in 1990 as one of the earliest projects of the William Baker Choral Foundation. The first chorus registered 95 singers, and interest has grown steadily over the years to a high of 177 registrants for the Summer Singers’ 2007 performance of Mozart’s REQUIEM. In its first quarter-centry, the Summer Singers has performed a strong representation of choral/orchestral masterworks. Highlights have included Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 and Mass in C, Haydn: The Creation and Lord Nelson Mass,
Mozart: Requiem, Solemn Vespers, Great Mass in C minor and Coronation Mass, Handel’s Coronation Anthems and Messiah excerpts, Brahms: Ein Frostiana, Vivaldi’s Gloria and Beatus Vir, and many more. During the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, the Summer Singers performed a concert of international celebration that featured 12 different languages.
The Summer Singers is a concept that has been so successful that it has been imitated both in Atlanta and in other cities across the nation. Yet, the Summer Singers holds the distinction of Atlanta’s original summer chorus. Including the Summer Singers of Atlanta, the Choral Foundation now sponsors five summer choruses with additional ensembles in Kansas City, Lee’s Summit, MO, Cartersville, GA and Smyrna, GA.
The 2014 Summer Singers of Atlanta will join with distinguished guest soloists and The Orchestra of the American Heartland in Mozart’s immortal Requiem, along with works of American composers writing during Mozart’s lifetime. Our performance will be August 3rd. Rehearsals begin Monday, June 9th.
NO AUDITION is required for membership in the Summer Singers of Atlanta, but music reading ability is a must. Choral experience is highly recommended. All adults and mature youth are invited to participate. (Youth under 16 may participate only if a parent of guardian is also a registered member of the Summer Singers.)
